Lawmakers ought to deal with encouraging relationships between the federal government and personal and nonprofit sectors to “focus on those kitchen table, pocket book issues” like creating jobs, enhancing pay, and constructing new infrastructure, Delaney stated.
Warren was fast to reply.
“You know, I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for,” the Massachusetts senator stated to applause.
Sen. Warren: “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for President of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for…I’m ready to get in this fight. I’m ready to win this fight.” https://t.co/lrVE7B6VCO #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/n8kwp3VjpA
